Not much to say that the video and pics don’t cover, except to say that I am starting to seriously consider the length of the bokken as an indicator of strength for impact.  On a swing it probably creates less of a fulcrum (physics genius’ jump in here, please) and can better redistribute the force.  For example, a 50-inch bokken is more likely to break on a swing than a 12 inch tanto; hence the 36-inch bokken are less prone to break than the 41 inch bokken.  That may have been the case here, though I think Honduras Rosewood is more durable than Bubinga in general.  Thoughts?
